The Gray House

The Gray House is said to be haunted by an old 18th century sea captain named Thomas Moristo. People claim to see his ghost through the windows. Residents have had stoves turned on and off, paint cans have been moved as well as other objects.

The house is part of the Pensacola ghost tour and investigations have regularly taken place inside the home.

  1. my parents (my mom) parents owned that place.
    It is truely haunted.
    It has a spirit in it that is very real.
    Its a friendly protector spirit that was lost… a lost soul…. (not a dark soul)
    he is still there to this day many people have experiences…

    I went there once to visit and see the place…
    they are right about your batteries being drained..
    in my old 110 camera with fresh batteries
    I could not get a picture to work while I was upstairs until I asked
    the Capt if he would allow me to take pictures…
    my camera worked….
    then when I said I think that will be enough thank you my camera went dead again…

    (btw the pictures were misty like the types of pics they say you get at haunted placed)

    this happened until I stepped off the porch of the house…
    then it worked again and no issues the rest of my trip…

    that alone tells me there is more to this life than we can prove…

    PM me anytime and I would love to talk about it….

      • Ashly, I ghost hunt. Would like to see this house also. I am going to Savanah to ghost hunt in December for 4 days. I have a YouTube channel called Gulf Coast and beyond. I will be posting Paranormal things there and this site as well.

  2. As I remember it, there is a staircase to the left that had a landing, then turns to continue up. On the landing was a girl child, could not get a feeling of anything distressing, just that she was there.
